This timely book examines parental rights to 'welfare state support' and parental responsibilities for child welfare in relation to recent social policy agendas pursued by the Labour government in the UK in the context of child well-being research, state welfare analysis and sociological research about parental perspectives and the multiple contexts of parenting and childhood. It calls for notions of parental rights and responsibilities which are more responsive to the diversity of parental perspectives and parenting contexts. The book is valuable reading for students, researchers and practitioners in social policy and child and family services.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A comprehensive and timely critical review" Journal of Social Policy
"Harriet Churchill's new book is a comprehensive, well written and extremely useful review of recent family policy and research. Recommended reading." Val Gillies, Families & Social Capital Research Group, London South Bank University
"Harriet Churchill powerfully juxtaposes British policies around parenting with the experiences and perspectives of parents. This encounter is both a painful and productive one, enabling her to suggest ways in which parental rights and responsibilities might be re-thought." John Clarke, Professor of Social Policy, The Open University
